District Calendar

Welcome To
Hoover Elementary School


It is my esteemed pleasure to welcome our parents, community members, and our students to the 2017-2018 school year at Hoover-Schrum Memorial School District 157. My name is Semaj Coleman. I am thrilled to be serving in the capacity of Principal of Hoover Elementary School and partnering with our staff to nurture our future leaders.

We at Hoover Elementary have a strong belief that with the right support, all students can achieve great things both in and out of the classroom. With this in mind, our teachers and other educational staff have designed a rigorous curriculum that will stretch the academic minds of all of our learners. We further believe that fostering skills such as critical thinking, adaptability, problem solving, and innovation helps to prepare our learners for the global, 21st century world we live in.

Research has shown that students are most successful when there is a strong partnership between the school, community, and their families. Having said this, we welcome our families and our communities to become part of the Hoover Elementary family. Parents and family members are encouraged to volunteer to be book readers, field trip chaperones, etc. We also ask community members to assist in the safe passage of our students to and from our school building every day. We have a stronger impact when we work together, but more importantly, our students achieve more when we work together.

Welcome again to the 2017 – 2018 school year. If there is anything that you need from me, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your child’s education!

Best wishes,

Semaj Coleman
Principal, Hoover Elementary School
